World History and Cultural Events Book Group

August 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Online

All are welcome to join this monthly discussion of books on current and historical world events and international culture.  This month’s book is:  Three Days in January by Bret Bair.  Baier masterfully casts the period between Eisenhower’s now-prophetic farewell address on the evening of January 17, 1961, and Kennedy’s inauguration on the afternoon of January 20 as the closing act of one of modern America’s greatest leaders—during which Eisenhower urgently sought to prepare both the country and the next president for the challenges ahead.

Join this virtual event HERE on August 11, 2021, 7 p.m.

Those three days in January 1961, Baier shows, were the culmination of a lifetime of service that took Ike from rural Kansas to West Point, to the battlefields of World War II, and finally to the Oval Office. When he left the White House, Dwight Eisenhower had done more than perhaps any other modern American to set the nation, in his words, “on our charted course toward permanent peace and human betterment.”
